We visited from the US to attend the Shrewsbury Folk Music festival and chose Charnwood. It was comfortable, and we had a very nice time. The innkeeper, Sue, is a terrific innkeeper. She offered us great advice for getting around, and is a wonderful host. The room was comfortable, although we packed too much clothing, we did not have space... More

The hostess had a terrible attitude. She made me feel very un-welcome and vicitimised me for not choosing the occupancy when booking even though I was never given an option. She complained about the early breakfast of 7am.... The pillow smelled of tabbacco. The bed was meant for two people but my son fell out in the night. Please save... More

This lady booked a single room for three nights. She arrived with her two year old toddler and so I gave her a double room at no extra cost. She neither paid for or advised me of him. She booked breakfast for 9 am but was knocking me up at 6 am for milk for her child. There is a... More

Nice clean twin bed room, comfy bed. No noise disturbance from the road. Powerful hot shower. Tasty, generous continental breakfast (croissant with nutella & strawberries....very nice). Lovely, welcoming host. Good wifi. No problem with late check in nor late breakfast. Stored my bicycle safely off the road. What more can you ask for. Would recommend to others. Rob

Very good B&B! Rooms are really comfy (as are the beds) and the full English breakfast is simply delicious. The rooms are very well kept. The B&B is close to two good pubs and is only a short distance from the town center. There is enough private parking space and not really much traffic noise. Jo is an excellent Tourguide... More

What a warm, friendly and welcoming we got. The room was lovely and warm, plus it was a lovely view over the garden. We both slept so well, which having been camping in Much Wenlock was just what we needed. Jo made us feel really welcome and the whole place gives a really homely feeling. We came for our first...

The Charnwood is a lovely B&B. The room was pleasant and clean, the ensuite is a little small, my 6ft husband was a little cramped while using the facilities, although the shower was large. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. Would highly recommend

Staying at Charnwood Guestbook turned out to be great. The bedroom had a homely feel, and the good quality duvet cover and sheets allowed for a decent sleep. Services included everyday cleaning of the bedroom and replacement of essentials. The owner Jo offered for breakfast a good range of choices for breakfast and the full English option was cooked to...

The Charnwood is conveniently located for the English Bridge and Abbey approach to the town and the room was quiet and reasonably soundproof despite being on a somewhat busy main road. Everything was clean and tidy, the rooms nice and airy with their large modern windows. The beds were comfy and there was a good shower, Whilst not the best... More
